Treetop Challenge

The first ever of our high ropes courses to contain a zip wire that whizzes over a gorge, you can be sure this trailblazing site provides the most adrenaline-filled excitement for anyone over the age of 10 who’s brave enough. Get your heart racing as you speed up the Apple Picker’s Ladder to access the higher platforms, before you plunge down from the treetops on the Tarzan Swing. Set in beautiful parkland, this Aberdeenshire location adds a bold new element to exploring nature, as you experience the satisfaction of challenging yourself further than you thought possible.

  • Fantastic afternoon at Go Ape Crathes. Would definitely recommend. Staff absolutely excellent, particularly Jack our instructor. There were four in our group, myself, my husband and two sons, my 10 year old son went to start and was very upset as he didn't think he could do it as he was scared. Jack encouraged him and talked to him and my son went ahead and had a brilliant time, so much so he even did the Tarzan swing! It was a great afternoon, thanks so much Go Ape!

  • A must do for anyone!! What an amazing experience. The feeling of flying through the air is unbelievable!! Our instructor was very thorough and put us at ease right from the start. I would recommend this to anyone!!

    Amy and Grant Simpson

  • Great staff and a good laugh. Not as big or as challenging as the Aberfoyle one (if I remember), but still top notch.

    David Bell

  • Great challenge, great fun. Everyone should try it once.

    Yvonne McMillan

  • Very fun experience, but was expecting something more physically demanding and a bit more bigger area. Zip lines are very well designed. Instructors were very good at explaining everything and made sure we are safe.
